I’ve pushed another update to the Basternae client today, version 0.23. Download is available on the sidebar, as always.
Here’s what’s changed:
- Alias support has been added. Usage is #alias <keyword> <text that replaces the keyword>. Aliases are saved when you click File -> Save Settings and loaded at startup.
- Rendering of surface map sections with T-facing-right road pieces is fixed.
- Fixed a glitch with closing and then reopening the status, group, equipment, hotkey, and map windows.
- Improved the initial opening position of the equipment and group windows.
Give the client a try and let me know if and how aliases need to be improved (as in, what you typically do in WinTin or ZMud that doesn’t work here yet). I used to use aliases, but I never did anything all that complex. Typical aliases I used were “gc” = “get all corpse”, “ik” = “cast ‘ariek’ thri-kreen”, and the like.
Also note that the client doesn’t nag you about updates. If you want an update you have to come here looking for it.
